    Hillary Clinton and the Whitewater Controversy: A Close-Up

    This was a good article from 1996 and a great history lesson for all the liberals
    that want to bash republicans about corporate greed.

    In a television interview with Barbara Walters in January 1996, the first lady recited a favorite children's verse to explain her predicament:

    "As I was standing in the street as quiet as could be,
    A great big ugly man came up and tied his horse to me".

    The First Lady and Whitewater: Who's Who and the skeletons she left behind.


    JAMES B. McDOUGAL
    Friend of Bill Clinton and gubernatorial aide during Clinton's first term, he was a partner with the Clintons in the Whitewater real estate venture and owned the failed Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan. He was convicted last week on federal fraud and conspiracy charges.

    SUSAN McDOUGAL
    James McDougal's former wife and partner in the Whitewater real estate venture. She was also convicted last week in the Whitewater-related fraud trial.

    RICHARD MASSEY
    Young associate at the Rose Law Firm when Madison Guaranty became a client in 1985. Hillary Rodham Clinton has said Massey played a key role in bringing in Madison as a Rose client, but he does not remember the events in the same way.

    RONALD CLARK
    Current managing partner of the Rose Law Firm. While Hillary Clinton has said Massey asked for her help in getting McDougal to pay his outstanding legal bills in April 1985, Clark maintains that they were already paid by November 1984.

    GARY BUNCH
    Onetime president of Madison Bank & Trust, another McDougal-owned financial entity that owed money to the Rose Law Firm.

    BEVERLY BASSETT SCHAFFER
    A Gov. Bill Clinton appointee to the Arkansas Securities Commission, she took a telephone call from Hillary Clinton in April 1985, six days after McDougal put Rose Law Firm on retainer.


    SETH WARD
    Arkansas businessman hired by McDougal to assist in land acquisition for the Castle Grande project, and Webster Hubbell's father-in-law. Hillary Clinton worked with Ward on certain legal details of the project she knew as IDC.

    WEBSTER L. HUBBELL
    President Clinton's appointee as associate U.S. attorney general and former partner in the Rose firm, he pleaded guilty to defrauding the firm and its clients through false billings.

    JIM GUY TUCKER
    Arkansas governor convicted last week on mail fraud and conspiracy charges linked to the Castle Grande deal. He announced his intention to resign this summer.

    DAVID HALE
    Former Arkansas municipal judge and owner of a small business investment company, he pleaded guilty to defrauding the federal Small Business Administration and was the chief government witness in the trial of the McDougals and Gov. Tucker.

    SAM BRATTON
    An aide to Gov. Clinton who oversaw regulatory issues, he was alerted by Arkansas Securities Commissioner Schaffer that McDougal's S&L was in trouble with federal authorities.

    VINCENT FOSTER
    Former Rose Law Firm partner who went to the Clinton White House as deputy counsel. At Rose, Foster had been billing partner in work the firm did for Madison Bank & Trust.

    CAROLYN HUBER
    Former Rose Law Firm office manager who worked in the White House residence handling the Clintons' personal correspondence. She packed away Hillary Clinton's law firm records in a box of "knickknacks" and said she was unaware they were the long-sought Rose billing records.

    DAVID R. GERGEN
    As counselor to the president, Gergen advised the Clintons to share all Whitewater-related documents with The Washington Post in December 1993. In an interview in January, Hillary Clinton suggested that she and the president had done just that with the New York Times during the 1992 campaign, but five days later the White House issued a clarification saying she was mistaken.

    ALSTON JENNINGS
    Prominent Little Rock lawyer who represented businessman Seth Ward. He visited the White House residence and talked with Hillary Clinton and her lawyer David Kendall around the time the first lady's law firm billing records appeared on a table in the third-floor book room of the White House residence.

    DAVID KENDALL
    The first lady's personal lawyer on Whitewater issues announced discovery of the billing records and turned them over to the independent counsel. Kendall called the billing records episode "another of the meaningless mysteries of Whitewater."

        She doesn't scare me, she certainly an upgrade over Obama, but she was the poster child of corporate greed on her rise to the top. She is a cold cutthroat b**** that will be almost 70 years old when elected.

          Hillary would not be running for President if her husband wasn't President. She rode his coattails and is a good puppet of the establishment. She's the clear favorite for the nomination. The thing that really scares the **** outta me is that the Republicans won't nominate someone better.

            The Clintons are wholly owned by Wall Street. She'll get plenty of money to run.

              Great quote

              In a television interview with Barbara Walters, Hillary Clinton said:

              "As I was standing in the street as quiet as could be,
              A great big ugly man came up and tied his horse to me".


              She plays the woman victim card .......

                Don't think she is an upgrade over OBAMA because he understands the little guy. Hillary has always been well off.

                However you and the right bringing up the BIG DOG'S BJ and Whitewater which has no relevance today whatsoever shows how weak
                the republican challenge to Hillary really is................

                Keep digging to China on Bengazi, there has to be something there...lol

                Be real

                  Jetmeck a politicians past has no relevance in an election for President? You're kidding right? All they do is vet the past, both sides.

                  You are saying Romneys past investing, statements etc should not have been fair game as it's in the past and no longer relevant?

                    Well for that matter John Quincy Adams and George W. Bush wouldn't have been president either if their daddy hadn't been president.
